I worked at Family Court. I called him Mr. Golt. I was his direct contact. He served all of our petitions. He was well like by everyone on my department. I fought hard to save his representation with us. The saddest day was when he was let go of our contract. I missed him so much. He was a great person. Always happy. What I remember most was you knew when he was in the office. His cologne would linger thru the halls. Everyone would say, Mr Golt's been here. He was my friend and he is missed.

My condolences, I worked in the Galleria & talked to or saw Bill 3-5 days a week for the last 11 years. Even recently, since his business moved to Silverside rd, I would bump into him outside of his home when I did my trail runs through the Brandywine Park. We had many great, genuine conversations, and some good laughs. I will miss him dearly.

Whenever I think of Mr. Golt I will remember his smile, his savy appearance with his choice of colors and style. Whenever he entered a room he was defitnitely noticed and will be missed.
